"Let's spend the next four hours reviewing the project plan."
"I've detailed every resource, task and dependency into an exquisitely accurate road map."
"It took me two weeks, but it's the only way to make sure we're not wasting time."
"My tasks are two weeks late because I was waiting for your input."
"And you left off one task, so all the dependencies are wrong."
"I'm changing all of my estimate to 'to be determined'."
"Can we do that? I've just been using random numbers."
"I'll have to redo the whole plan."
"Don't worry. We won't do anything until we hear from you."
